Ark will work with PsiOxus in providing oncolytic adenoviral material for IV administration in toxicological and Phase I/II trials, utilising Ark's suspension based single use system (ATOSUS).

Besides providing manufacturing capabilities, PsiOxus will benefit from Ark's experience in the regulatory CMC aspects of developing a gene-based medicine, said Martyn Williams, Ark's CEO.
